South Jersey Geek Fest

GeekFest FAIRE is April 3, 2021

10AM-5PM Always a rain or shine event

It’s Like GeekFest only smaller

Mask up and come down! We will be inviting a few special guests to @The Nerd Mall‘s parking lot and yard for a scaled down socially distant event.

We will be limiting entry and the number of folks at one time but we will have about 12 vendors to accompany the already amazing Nerd Mall grouping of Tiki Tiki Board Games, Luke & Cade’s Toy Chest, ABXY Video Games, SNIKT Comics and On the Record!

Masks will be required and we will have a dining area set up (for dining there will be a time limit). The Cosplay contest will be virtual and we will instruct on the day of what and where you will need to pose, photo and post. Vendors will be set up in the back parking lot and will be set up socially distanced, masks will be required there as well. We will be scanning folks at the door for temperatures so if you are not feeling up to snuff please please please stay home.

No early birds PLEASE! We need to allow vendors to set up so the doors will open at 10AM, we hope to see you then.

 

At this time THE REGULAR Version of South Jersey Geek Fest will be postponed until Saturday October 30, 2021.

We’ve received several questions in regard to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its effect on the upcoming Geek Fest.

The 2020-21 Editions of SJ GeekFest have officially been postponed until October 30, 2021 due to concerns regarding the spread of the Covid-19 virus. It saddens our hearts but as most of you have probably guessed by now events are happening in a limited way which leads us to this announcement.
As all of you who have been in contact know this decision was not an easy one to come by. We have spent countless hours agonizing over what to do, attempted to make alternative locations, settings and versions of the show work to no avail. We do take pride in our event and are also super concerned for people’s safety in current conditions.
 
We look forward to seeing everyone in 2021 at the Woodbury Heights Community Center (or somewhere else) as we get back to business with nearly 200 local vendors, amazing food trucks, live music, outside larping and fun and so much more! In the meantime thank you all very much for the love, support and guidance you have given us.
 
Live Long and Prosper

About Us

Always a Rain or Shine event
228% Amazing

Geek fest is a celebration of your geekery featuring comics, art, tabletop games, music, video games, YouTubers, Yo-Yo’s, cosplayers and much much more.

Our goal is to put on a medium, one day convention in southern NJ to have some fun with our geeky interests. The word geek is a slang term originally used to describe eccentric or non-mainstream people, with different connotations ranging from “an expert or enthusiast” to “a person heavily interested in a hobby”, with a general pejorative meaning of “a peculiar or otherwise dis-likable person, especially one who is perceived to be overly intellectual”. Although often considered as a pejorative, the term is also used self-referentially without malice or as a source of pride. Its meaning has evolved to connote “someone who is interested in a subject (usually intellectual or complex) for its own sake.”
